Wilson was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a shoulder injury, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Per the report, Wilson suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He rushed two times for seven yards in the contest, but will now likely be sidelined for the remainder of the season. The undrafted rookie out of Duke recorded six rushing attempts for 29 yards and caught three of five targets for five yards.
Wilson saw his offense role increase slightly, as he logged 10 snaps from scrimmage. However, the speedy rookie still remains firmly behind Jacquizz Rodgers as the backup to Peyton Barber, and he could well revert back to inactive status on most weeks once Ronald Jones II (hamstring) is healthy enough to return to action.
Wilson only logged four snaps from scrimmage, but he saw action on half of them while also serving in the primary kickoff return role as expected. Wilson's active status was the byproduct of Ronald Jones II's hamstring issue, and with the unpredictable nature of soft-tissue injuries, it's certainly conceivable the former gets another opportunity to suit up in Week 10 against the Redskins.
Wilson is a candidate to see action on kickoff returns against the Panthers in Week 9, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Wilson is active for the first time since Week 3. The speedy rookie logged only eight snaps total on offense over the first three games of the campaign, but he contributed 97 return yards through his work on kickoffs. Despite his active status and Ronald Jones' (hamstring) absence, Wilson is unlikely to see more than a scant number of carries behind Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers.
Wilson has been a healthy scratch for the last four games, but will return to the gameday roster with Ronald Jones (hamstring) ruled out. Wilson is unlikely to play a significant offensive role but could be involved on special teams.
